Manchin Announces $1 Million For Water Infrastructure Upgrades In Marion County

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $1,000,000 from the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the Town of Worthington to support essential upgrades to their water service. This federal award is one of the Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) requests Senator Manchin secured on behalf of West Virginia through the Fiscal Year 2023 funding bill.

“I’m pleased the EPA is investing $1 million to support critical upgrades to Worthington’s water service,” said Senator Manchin. “We must continue to upgrade our water infrastructure through projects that create positive impacts for future generations. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue working with the EPA to ensure every West Virginian across the Mountain State has access to safe, reliable water.”

The Senate Appropriations Committee allows members of Congress to submit CDS requests, which provides an opportunity for state and local governments, non-profits, and other public entities to receive targeted funding for projects that bolster their communities and directly support West Virginians. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Manchin works to ensure taxpayer dollars are allocated to priorities that benefit all West Virginians, boost economic growth and support the needs of communities across the Mountain State while remaining fiscally responsible.
